Private Messages - default settings?

When the forum was first setup, 3.5 years ago, the default setting for new users was "incoming PMs enabled".
There was some lively discussion at that time, and the majority opinion was to disable this setting by default, the reasoning being that members did not want to receive unsolicited PMs.

It is time to revisit the issue, and see how the members think that the default should be set. This has come about because of new members sending PMs that cannot be replied to, because their incoming PMs are disabled.

There are good reasons for both ... how do you feel?
